Description

The National Olympic Committee of Portugal was formed on 28 October 1909. Portugal has competed at the Olympic Games continuously since 1912. It has attended the Olympic Winter Games less frequently, attending in 1952, 1994, 2006 and 2010 with a sole competitor, with two in 1998 and 2014, and with five in 1988. Through 2012, Portugal has won 23 Olympic medals, all at the Summer Games. Portuguese athletes have particularly excelled in the marathon, and three of the nation’s four Olympic titles were won in that event. Best known of these is probably Carlos Lopes, who won the 1984 men’s marathon at age 37.
